Camper Supplies

Must- Have Camper Supplies

Planning for an outdoor adventure but you are not fully decided on what are to bring? Before you go to the nearest store and purchase all those camper supplies, better put those into writing so the what-is-next-to-buy-problem will not consume your precious time. It is also but wise to consider the budget and read those gear descriptions. If you have lots of questions, do not hesitate to throw them in. It just goes to show how intense your curiosity is.

Below is a list of camper supplies, not just those you would want to bring, but those that you really need to.

* Sleeping Pads, Bags and Pillows
The first thing to consider when buying a sleeping bag is its temperature rating. An adequate bag should exceed the temperature extremes where you camp. You'll find light sleeping bags rated at 40° to 50° for summer camping, heavy mountaineering bags rated at -20° and below, and everything in between.

* Lanterns
Campgrounds typically don't have lighting available, so you'll need a lantern to see what you're doing after dark. Most are inexpensive and come in 1 mantel or 2 mantel styles. They use propane, white gas, or other fuels. Some also use either a match to light or an electronic lighter.

* Stoves
A camp stove is another essential item needed for camping. Cold foods get old after a while, and you can only cook so many dishes over a campfire or on a grill. Like lanterns, there are various styles and different fuels used.

* Coolers and Ice chests
If you like cold drinks at the campground or you need to preserve perishable foods, you're going to need a cooler or ice-chest. The size and efficiency of any cooler will be determined by your camping habits.

* Footprint Tarps
Extend the life of your tent with the added protection of a ground cloth. This footprint tarp protects against abrasion and acts as an added barrier to help keep moisture out of the tent and make it more comfortable for those inside. Most tent manufacturers make footprint tarps cut specifically to the dimension of your tent. Otherwise, use any tarp, but be sure to tuck the edges under the tent.
